In Contemplative Prayer, Father Thomas Keating introduces you to this method for inviting the grace of God into your life, to discover the treasure of holiness always present in ordinary events. Join Father Keating as he teaches a complete workshop on this system of Christian meditation, as it has been practiced in the cloisters and monasteries of Europe since medieval times. Contemplative prayer, like a freshening wind, is an uplifting event that can help take you to the starting point of the true spiritual journey.

I started using Lectio Divina several months ago and have found a new and exciting committment to pray. As many who strugle with prayer, Lectio and this book on contemplation is a must for those looking to be active in prayer or to jump start your current prayer life.I always spent time in a monologue with God...now we have a dialogue.It is very comforting to rest in the silence of the King.
As I listen to Father Thomas I am transported to 'where Heaven and Earth meet' What a joy to spend time in his presence
I like the audio version because you get the expression and deliberation of the words. Much more expressive
An elderly gentleman who loves to learn.
I don't mean to be so hard on this book, but I used my free book credit to get it and I would have learned more from another. He seems to wish he were a psychologist rather than a priest. I would have wished that he had spent more time on other, older writers on contemplative prayer. This isn't really a book. It is a lecture he gave. I felt that his point that our desire for God, Augustine to the contrary, comes from a bad pregnancy rather than the calling of a lonely God for his wandering lambs.
